This cool raglan band tee is for Quiet Riot and the shirt commemorates the band's 1984 tour promoting their album Metal Health. The album made history when it became the first ever heavy metal album to reach the top of the Billboard 200, successfully dethroning Synchronicity from the Police. Many music critics saw this upset as the official start of the hair metal era, and Metal Health also spawned Quiet Riot's signature hit song "Cum On Feel the Noize". The attention that the single drew brought nationwide focus to the metal scene that was emerging out of Los Angeles at the time, although the song was actually a cover of a 1973 track written and recorded by the English band Slade.
Heavy rotation on MTV and a small feature on the Footloose soundtrack, furthered the band's popularity. After the release of Metal Health, they drew more attention by touring as the opening act for ZZ Top on their Eliminator Tour. Quiet Riot also supported Black Sabbath during their Born Again Tour. In 1984 they released their follow up album Condition Critical, which included another successful Slade cover "Mama Weer All Crazee Now".
